Eighty years ago, a young firm, founded by Chicago Stockholders, started to
develop a new kind of unbreakable flexible record, which should be sold as a
weekly issue containing the last music hits. The first ones should be sold
in February 1930 in the New York news stands. In the preceding months test
records were made - today one of the first - the oldest one that still
exist. A very rare test record !!
The next months the Hit of the week blog ( http://hitoftheweek.blogspot.com
) will follow all weekly issues on a weekly schedule starting the 13th of
February 2010, eighty years after the first one could be obtained. Before
that time several test, promo and custom records were released to be
spotlighted the next weeks.
